Things I'm Looking Forward to in May

-Warmer temperatures and the continuing blossoming of flowers, leaves, and trees everywhere. I haven't experienced a proper New England spring in nine years and I've really been enjoying all the loveliness of it! (expect to see pictures sometime this fall when spring is long-gone 😄)

-Tacos for dinner on Cinco de Mayo! For some reason they always seem to taste better than ever on that day!

-The return of When Calls the Heart after its season was disrupted by the scandal with Lori Loughlin. I'm eager to see the re-tooled episodes and how/if they wrote her character off the show. I'm still sad about this but the shock has worn off since I last wrote about it!

Abigail is gone! 😕

-An overnight trip with two of my friends to the Berkshires to do fun girl things and see some historic sites like Emily Dickinson's house and Edith Wharton's (haunted) mansion. We're going to stay at a beautiful old inn. I'm so excited to get away with them! I can't remember the last time I did a girls' trip with friends.

-Mother's Day...and the Edible Arrangement I'll hopefully get (are you reading this, Peter?) and maybe a delicious brunch made by him and the boys after church! I'm so thankful to be a mother, and I'm thankful for my own mother (are you reading this, Mom? 😉).

-Seeing Disney's newest movie, Aladdin! I think it's gonna be good!

-The pool being opened and ready to use again. Setting up all of the outdoor furniture. Getting a fire pit (hopefully) and setting that up. Hello summer!

-And last but not least, it's the last full month of school!

It's going to be a great month! 🙌
